The Hole and the Answer

One time this guy met this girl

She became his world

She meant everything to him

But soon

Trouble started

She told him there was something wrong

Definitely something wrong with him

And she’d be leaving, soon

He was shattered

He couldn’t bear to see her go

So he began to look

For ways to fix himself

Someone told him he had a hole

Right there in his chest

Where his heart spot is

So he started putting stuff there

To cover up the hole

Maybe that’d fix it

And she wouldn’t leave

He put newer clothes on

And that worked for a few days

She said, “Nah, something’s still wrong.”

Then he put huge jewelry over the hole

That was even worse

She was jealous and took it for herself

He wanted a tattoo

But you can’t tattoo a hole

So he started wearing signs

To cover up the hole

They said how he felt

About various topics of the day

That kept things interesting for her

For a little while

She loved to disagree with his signs

And confuse his mind

But even that bored her

And she said, “Yep, something’s still wrong.”

One day he found another guy

Who mentioned he once had a hole

And that everyone has this hole

And he knew how to be whole

So, this guy asked that guy

What is the way to fix this hole

And so, he was told

The hole you have is round, like a circle

There’s a cross that you put over the hole

And it keeps things from falling through

It’s magnetic and it draws things to it

So that good things you want, hang around

And help keep the hole filled

There’s a bigger part behind the cross

And it grows the more you wear it

It is shaped like a heart

And there’s another part attached

To the cross that you can pull out

You can touch others with it

And see if they need a hug or a hand

You can touch things with it

To use it to tell if something’s good or bad

It is really a useful piece

It also gives you a lot of peace

Because when you put this cross over the hole

Once you get it there, it will stay

And you won’t worry about having a hole

Not one more, any other day

So this guy asked that guy

Why didn’t I know?

About the Answer and the hole

And that guy said

That people kept covering their holes

And using different things for so long

And just moving on from thing to thing

And person to person

Until everyone just forgot

We all have a hole

And the way to fill it

Sure enough, this guy was shocked

To see, this girl had a hole, too

When he really looked close

And they tried out a cross

And their heart shaped parts grew

And they became dependent

On the piece attached

They used to know if the other needed a hug

Or a hand or a smile

And they used it to see if things were good

Or bad for them

And their crosses became even more magnetic

And they drew more good

People and things and situations

Into their lives

And they realized they had found the fix

To the something that was wrong

With both of them

The holes they had in their chest

Where their hearts were

And they began to tell others

About how all people have this hole

And how to be whole

This blog is for anyone who wants to know more about Jesus and His love and how faith in Him plays out in real life application. Hello, we are Jerry and Angela and we are two fools for Christ. We have decided to make our lives totally surrendered to Jesus in response to His love and His gift of salvation. We are in our early 40′s and we have two children together and [Angela has] an older daughter that is now an adult. We have been married to each other for going on ten years. We surrendered our lives to the Lord together in 2010 and have been growing in that relationship with Him and each other since that time. We both accepted salvation and made professions of faith earlier in our lives, but did not make Him Lord and Savior until 2010. At that time we realized that trying to walk in our own strength and our own ways was useless and empty and had led us to another rock bottom experience. We humbly turned our lives over to Jesus and have been seeking Him with all that we are ever since. That does not mean that we have become perfect. That does not mean that we have not sinned again. That does not mean that we have not had trouble or trials or storms since that time. What this means is that we are growing, we are learning, we are becoming more loving and compassionate and forgiving. We want to share our faith with our readers. We want to share our growth process and transformation with you. We wish to encourage you and lift you.
